In the last 10 years Reiki has gone from being almost unheard of to being one of the most popular therapies.  Reiki originated in Japan in the 19th century by Dr. Mikao Usui, as a method for personal growth and healing.  People have sought Reiki to reduce stress, relieve pain and aid healing. But at its roots, Reiki is about personal and spiritual growth. The beauty of Reiki is it’s simplicity, gentleness and suitability for all.

What Happens During a Reiki Session?

The practitioner gently places their hands on or slightly over the body. There is no manipulation, the hands are simply a vessel for the energy to flow through. The recipient may feel sensations of warmth, coolness, tingling or nothing at all. The recipient will only absorb the amount of energy that is needed and the Reiki will work on wherever their body draws it, enhancing their body’s natural ability to heal itself.  If you’d like to know more, you can watch a short video, about Reiki.
